. and i now know, having spoken to a number of people out in chicago, and a number of people here in los angeles, that because of the market manipulation that is taking place, it's highly unlikely and therefore not probable we'll get that 1% prince tht this year. so i was wrong. >> i think the moment you decided that was the moment the fed spoke, right? it was a week ago thursday. >> again, in early -- in early july, when i joined you from europe and we were talking about the many problems in europe and some of the things that were happening, since then obviously you've had the ecb tell you they're going to do whatever they have to do. i think really here it's this idea that true price discovery in the bond market is not occurring. and in any market, whether it be stocks, equities, bonds, options, commodities, future, when manipulation and true price discovery is not there, fundamental cases, and in this case fundamental cases just won't prevail. >> the same thing can be said about some strategists who cover equities and who've had to say the same thing in the last week, gary. talk to yo
